Raeldayan Aplaon :
Peace Be Still The soft voice of Jesus are whispers of peace You feel it like heart beats in quietness it speaks In tender compassion He understands your grief When you pause in silence His calm voice you hear Cho: He speaks peace be still and the wind cease to blow He speaks peace be still and the waves calm down too The dark clouds you fear that will not let you go Will shines like a star In the sweet name of Jesus (2X at the ending part) It shines like a star There are times when you can't stand up any more There's much pain and sorrow than happiness and joy What ever you've been through He's not surprise to know For in every sorrow He shed tears with you Bridge: In your hardest times look into His eyes In timber tones it speaks with tears that your heart can understand In your hardest times look into His eyes And you will find the comfort that you need It shines like a star In the sweet name of Jesus 2X It shines like a star (Interlude by Andi and Henrique) It shines like a start (Back to Chorus) RSA 7-10-2015

William Shakespeare :
The Prince but studies his companions Like a strange tongue, wherein, to gain the language, 'Tis needful that the most immodest word Be looked upon and learnt, which once attained, Your highness knows, comes to no further use But to be known and hated.
[William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Warwick, in Henry IV, Part 2, act 4, sc. 4, l. 69-73. On Prince Hal as using Falstaff and others for his education.]
Dave Cole :
Theory of Everything (TOE) : Everything is one big thing (manifold of matter and energy) with many working and changing parts. Time is not fundamental. Time measures the change of something relative to the change of something else. Matter and energy are ubiquitous in the universe so space cannot be independent or fundamental from matter (mass) and energy. Right? And if I am right, spacetime is not fundamental. So closing the gap between the microscopic (quantum) and macroscopic (spacetime) world of matter and energy must begin at the level of relative spacetime. A correction is needed. What is the correction? I do not know...

Sarah B Askew :
If you have ever watched an artist constructing with bits of cold stone a beautiful living picture you know that he works faithfully and carefully on the pattern from the wrong side and while he is working every inequality, every tint a little too dull is apparent to him as his picture grows, but he works on and on. And even when he finishes at last and looks down at the completed pattern he is not discouraged to see here a little crevice and there a little roughness, an open seam here, a tiny patch there where the bit of marble was too small. Now he pours his cement over it and smoothes [sic] it into every seam, and with faith puts his work to dry. Next day the pattern is turned and the perfect whole is given to view, needing only the polishing of a loving hand to make it ready to slip in place. So we should work faithfully on our pattern, cement it together with ourselves, and polish it with human kindness; and lo! the work slips into place seemingly a perfect whole.
[Sarah B. Askew, U.S. librarian. The Place, the Man and the Book (1916). Likening a mosaic artist's work to that of a librarian choosing the books for a library collection.]

Jorge Luis Borges :
It is known that Whistler when asked how long it took him to paint one of his "nocturnes" answered: "All of my life." With the same rigor he could have said that all of the centuries that preceded the moment when he painted were necessary. From that correct application of the law of causality it follows that the slightest event presupposes the inconceivable universe and, conversely, that the universe needs even the slightest of events.
[Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), Argentinian author. "Gauchesque Poetry" ["La poesía gauchesca"], Discussion [Discusión] (1932).]

Jeanne Elium :
Somehow we have been taught to believe that the experiences of girls and women are not important in the study and understanding of human behavior. If we know men, then we know all of humankind. These prevalent cultural attitudes totally deny the uniqueness of the female experience, limiting the development of girls and women and depriving a needy world of the gifts, talents, and resources our daughters have to offer.
[Jeanne Elium (20th century), U.S. writer and educator, and Elium (20th century), U.S. family counselor and author. Raising a Daughter, ch. 4 (1994).]

Mary Wollstonecraft :
Women are told from their infancy, and taught by the example of their mothers, that a little knowledge of human weakness, justly termed cunning, softness of temper, outward obedience, and a scrupulous attention to a puerile kind of propriety, will obtain for them the protection of man; and should they be beautiful, every thing else is needless, for, at least, twenty years of their lives.
[Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), British feminist. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, ch. 2 (1792).]

Martin Buber :
Socratic man believes that all virtue is cognition, and that all that is needed to do what is right is to know what is right. This does not hold for Mosaic man who is informed with the profound experience that cognition is never enough, that the deepest part of him must be seized by the teachings, that for realization to take place his elemental totality must submit to the spirit as clay to the potter.
[Martin Buber (1878-1965), Austrian-born Jewish philosopher. Israel and the World: Essays in a Time of Crisis, Schocken (1948).]
